Off Season

I'm a little annoyed this morning. Yesterday, we got a notice that all grade 3,4 & 5 students in District 18 will be participating in a 5 week learn to swim program. Don't get me wrong, I think swimming will be fun. My problem is...

a) It's January...and kiddo needs a new bathing suit...where the heck do I find one of those for less then $100. THIS time of year??

b) We got the notice on January 5th...it starts on the 12th!! oh yeah baby...I've got less then a week to find a flipping suit in the off season!!

c) She already knows how to swim very well!

d) There's no permission slip, because appearantly it's mandatory...they are, however, giving consideration for religious reasons or if you have a disease...gee - that's swell ofem!

Oh well...I guess the silver lining is that I'll have her summer suit a full 5 months early this year. That is, assuming she doesn't outgrow it before summer!! lol

On a shinier note, I made rice crispie squares last night and didn't even eat the whole pan!! lol

Zellers and Walmart had lots of suits on sale.

Walmart has a ton in the clearance section. Seriously like $5 or less! I almost bought Mia some in every size. Rice Krispie squares sound Yum O.
